The Timeline and Steps are general in nature. Most overseas students joining U.S. law school programs will follow most of these steps. However, your own path to success may differ slightly from the paths of other students.
Each LL.M. student has his or her own goals, motivations, strengths, needs and expectations. No one school is ideal for all students. Students necessarily will be spread out among the 150 U.S. law schools in the U.S. that offer LL.M. programs.
The goal is for you to make important decisions about what your goals are, sort out how to achieve your goals, and then follow your path towards achieving those goals.
The Timeline and Steps below will help guide you on your path to success! Indeed, the Timeline and Steps are your Roadmap to LL.M. success!
